Gift Focus inc Attire Accessories - July/August 2022

7 EDITOR’S LETTER On the cover Established in 1971 by chairman and co-founder Ronnie Pavey, Lesser & Pavey has become a leading UK trade supplier of giftware and homewares. By priding itself on fantastic quality at great value for money, the brand “The Leonardo Collection” has become renowned worldwide. Christmas comes early As we start curating the magazine in advance, it always feels slightly odd to start pulling together the Christmas products feature in May! However, there’s nothing better than being organised, and every year I get inspired by the wonderful offerings – and this year is no different. Check out the feature to get your store ready for the busiest selling season of the year! Of course, Halloween comes before that, and as it continues to become a bigger event in the UK, the gifting and self-purchase opportunities also continue to increase. Halloween homeware items are increasingly popular buys. If that wasn’t enough, we also have a look at some of the best home accessories products to market, as well as some great photo frames – a product that will sell all-year round. One of the most popular shows of the year, Home & Gift, is also featured this issue. Check out the show preview to see what’s to come, and the exhibitor profiles to plan your visit. And of course, we like to keep you up-to-date with not only the new giftware items on offer, but of the latest industry news. You’re in for a treat this issue!
